The HWR-00-Mk.IP Prototype Monster was a heavy weapons robot developed by Viggers and Centinental for the U.N. Navy. As an experimental self-propelled unit, the Monster was held back by its limited ability to walk on uneven surfaces. Compared to the production model HWR-00-Mk.II Destroid Monster, the prototype version was equipped with manipulator arms. The production version omitted the manipulators in favor of mounting missile launchers. The Prototype Monster was armed with four liquid propellant cannons and two triple railguns. It was also equipped with a rear-mounted dozer blade that was deployed to support the unit when firing its cannons. Only one prototype unit was manufactured, and in 2008 it was deployed to the Mayan island, where it fired reaction warheads in an attempt to destroy the mysterious Protoculture relic known as AFOS.
